great park, clean, employees very friendly, no issues checking in, during our stay or leaving, even though the park was very full on our stay it was still very quiet at night no loud partys, etc, nice beach area, trails for walking, etc. visited there twice both for 2-3 nights and definitely will visit again!!

Tour The Upper Peninsula! - MI

There's so much to see in the U.P.! This circle tour highlights some of the most beautiful parks in Michigan and gives you a complete sampling of everything the Upper Peninsula has to offer. Have fun!   DAY ONE: Straits State Park is the ideal starting point for your journey around the Upper Peninsula. Go for a hike, or have a picnic by the water with views of the Mackinac Bridge. From there, head west toward Palms Book State Park, where you can take a trip on the Kitch-iti-kipi raft. The raft allows visitors to see underwater springs that gush more than 10,000 gallons of water per minute. You can camp nearby at Indian Lake State Park, where cabins and a campground are available. Or, head back to Straits State Park for a night by the bridge.   DAY TWO: Next, head further west toward Bond Falls Scenic Site. Bond Falls is the middle branch of the Ontonagon river which tumbles over a thick belt of fractured rock, dividing the river into numerous small cascades. Just north of here, you can also view Agate Falls. Next, head east and stop at Laughing White Fish Falls and Wagner Falls scenic sites. Both sites offer short hiking trails and scenic observation decks that allow you to view the cascades up-close. BONUS TIPS: If you have time, make a special stop at Van Riper State Park to see moose, or Muskallonge State Park for agates on the Lake Superior beach. You can also stay overnight at Brimley State Park and take time to visit the famous Soo Locks. Several of the historic towns in the U.P. offer dining and lodging options as well.
